Swedish authorities have cordoned off the site of the gas leak

Published 4 October 2022 at 07.12

The decision involves a ban on moving ships, anchoring, diving, fishing, moving underwater craft or carrying out geophysical mapping.

– The investigation continues, we are in an intensive stage. We have good cooperation with several authorities in the matter. I understand the great public interest, but we are at the beginning of a preliminary investigation and I cannot therefore go into details about which investigative measures we are taking, says Chamber prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist in a press release.

A new overflight at 18:00 on Monday evening showed, according to the Coast Guard, that what was previously described as the larger discharge from Nord Stream 1 is still not visible on the surface. The discharge from Nord Stream 2 amounted to between 15 and 20 meters on the same occasion. According to the authority, this means that there is still an ongoing release, albeit a small one.

At the end of last week, it emerged that Swedish Navy ships had moved in the area of ​​the leaks in the days before the suspected attacks. The Swedish ships turned off their so-called AIS transmitters, which make them traceable, when they approached the very areas where the gas pipelines run, according to DN.
